Local Holocaust survivor and liberator to recount their experiences

March 3, 2018

On Sunday, March 18, 2018 at 4:00 p.m., the Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center of Philadelphia will conduct a free event at Adath Israel Congregation, 1958 Lawrenceville Road, Lawrenceville, NJ 08648. A Holocaust Survivor and Liberator will recount their experiences.

Holocaust survivor, Ernie Gross, and WWII Veteran and Dachau liberator, Don Greenbaum, will share their stories.  Don and Ernie first crossed paths on April 29th, 1945 in the Dachau concentration camp in Germany. Ernie was a 16-year-old teenager in line to be gassed by the Nazis. Don was a 20-year-old corporal in the U.S. army who came to liberate the camp. The two first met in 2012 and became friends.

The event is free and open to the public.  For more information please call 215-464-4701.

The Holocaust Awareness Museum (HAMEC) is the premier provider of Holocaust education programs in the Delaware Valley.  In the last school year alone, HAMEC completed over 350 programs and reached over 35,000 students. With passage of Pennsylvania’s new Holocaust and Genocide education law and implementation last fall, these numbers are expected to increase exponentially.  The museum is dedicated to educating students about the consequences of intolerance and hate. Each year museum programs reach thousands of students through Holocaust survivor presentations, school visits, videos, and plays such as the Anne Frank Theater Project.  The Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center is a non-profit organization supported by grants from the Conference on Material Claims Against Germany, government and foundation grants and private donations.
